According to Jussi Mattila, director of the Finnish Concrete Industry, the outlook in the sector is bleak.
There are few orders as neither industrial companies nor the trade sector are investing, and housebuilding has decreased.
Mattila is certain the sector will have to reduce its workforce. The concrete industry employs about 4,500 people in Finland with specialised companies said to have managed best.
